The applicability of employing parameter-dependent control to a nuclear pressurized water reactor is investigated. The synthesis techque produces a controller which achieves specified performance against the worst-case time variation of a measurable parameter which enters the plant in a linear fractional manner. The plant can thus have widely varying dynamics over the operating range. The results indicate this control technique is comparable to linear control when small operating ranges are considered.
